When to Call a Heating Contractor

Most homeowners don’t think twice about their HVAC system; they expect it to perform as needed every time they turn it on. However, whether they fail to perform routine maintenance or the system has reached the end of its lifespan, sometimes these systems fail to deliver, and you must call a service company for repairs. Here are the most common reasons people call HVAC contractors.

  • Your Home is Too Hot or Too Cold – One of the first signs your HVAC system is failing is if your home is either uncomfortably hot or cold or a noticeable difference in temperatures between rooms.
  • System Makes Odd Noises – Like all machines, you can expect your HVAC system to make some noise during operation; however, when it starts making noises you’ve not heard before, such as grinding or squealing, it means there’s a problem that you must fix ASAP.
  • Poor Airflow – Another common sign that your HVAC system isn’t working correctly is noticing weaker airflow than before. Inadequate airflow could be caused by a dirty air filter or possibly a blocked vent.
  • Age/Frequency of Repairs – The average HVAC system lasts around 15 years with routine maintenance, so if your system is past its prime, or you’re putting more money into repairs, it’s time to consider upgrading to a new, more efficient unit.

How to Maintain Your HVAC System

Most of us understand the importance of maintaining our vehicles; change the oil every 3,000 miles, check the brake pads, rotate tires, and so on. Regular maintenance ensures the machine runs correctly and lasts as long as possible. However, many people neglect to maintain their HVAC systems, which leads to inefficiency and premature failure. Here are some easy things you can do to keep your HVAC system in top form and guard against expensive repairs.

  • Change the Filters – If you can’t remember the last time you changed the filters in your HVAC system, it’s probably time to do it now. Keeping the filters clean ensures good airflow, which means less wear and tear on the system. Many experts recommend changing filters every 1-3 months.
  • Clean the Condenser – Most air conditioners have an outdoor condenser unit, which is prone to becoming clogged with dirt, leaves, pollen, and grime. Once each season, it’s a good idea to spray off the dirt and debris with a hose and straighten any bent fins.
  • Check the Drainpipe and Pan – Make sure your HVAC drain pipe is clear of blockages and check for mold buildup. Clogged drain lines are among the most common issues we find when an HVAC system is acting up.
  • Hire a Pro – To keep your system in perfect order, it’s wise to call a professional heating contractor once a year for maintenance and tune-ups. These professionals can spot and fix minor problems before they have a chance to develop into expensive repairs. Also, routine maintenance from a pro ensures that your system runs efficiently for as long as possible.
